Cost of bicycle as a business expense

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I'm a freelancer and I travel to work using a DB job ticket.

 

I recently bought a 2nd hand bike (€100) to travel to and from the station -

can I claim this as a business expense?

 

Thanks in advance for any feedback :)

You could have got it as a company bike though.

Oh except that you're a freelancer.

 

I'd think that law change would mean that if you'd deduct a freelancer's car as a necessary business expense, you should be able to deduct a bike too.
